However, I don't recall how well I faired against the AI in the original in other maps. It's been way too long since I played a skirmish in that game.
Well, if your experience matched mine, basically unless multiple AI armies attacked in series you could beat them 1 on 3-4. We usually were able to win 2 vs 6 without much trouble -- as long as we had choke points.

If you can win vs 3-4 AI you'd have no problem playing against people in the bronze/silver leagues. Had a few placement matches where my opponents would have like 8 scvs and 2 production buildings all game.

I think most people are just too intimidated by the idea of multiplayer. It's not like you're stepping into the Korean Brood war servers or something.

I wasn't a fan of Warcraft and SC games even for their single players. I am more of a military war games type of fan even if it is futuristic theme.

I don't see SCII's innovations taking it in that direction.

When I think of war games I think turn based tactical games. I don't see how C&C and even World in Conflict fit that bill.
C&C and WiC aren't turn based. They're RTS. I like military theme. I am not saying WC and SC are bad. It is just not a theme I care for. I do love Diablo and WoW though!

I thought you were talking about old school war games like Steel Panthers. But yeah, the theme of Starcraft II isn't going to change. Still space marines with southern accents fighting swarms of zerg (and each other) while the Protoss tries desperately to save the universe.

I did play the beta from end of Februrary 2010. Did the game get a lot better since then? I am not a big Blizzard RTS fan. I only enjoyed World in Conflict, Command & Conquer (C&C) games (not Red Alert/RA 3 and C&C4), etc.

The beta's only the competitive multiplayer aspect of Starcraft. It's the part that's hardest to balance and needs the most testing. It doesn't really reflect on the rest of the game. Since you last played in February, the map editor's been released, and there's a lot of cool custom maps that cater to all types of players. I'd get the game just for the custom maps.

Also, from what I've seen of the campaign, I don't see how it's possible to not enjoy the single player if you like games like C&C and World in conflict. The campaign has some solid variety, and the in-between mission story telling mode is the best I've ever seen from a RTS.

Can someone go into detail about differences from the first game? I played the first one briefly and it was an ok game but I wasn't into it. This looks like the same game with updated graphics... what are the major differences? Units, maps, unit abilities, mini map, etc. Is this like counterstrike source where its basically the same thing with some upgraded bells and whistles?

>50% of the units are new.
New in-between mission story mode, told from Jim Raynor's perspective. Wander around your ship, visit planets, talk to people, buy upgrades, select missions, etc. Some minor RPG elements.
Single player only units/upgrades, etc, many returning from Brood War
New graphics/physics engine, lets mapmakers do stuff like flowing lava.
Single challenge missions, meant to teach people skills useful in multiplayer games (like macro/micro).
Multiplayer wise, new matchmaking system, separating players by skill level. Noob friendly multiplayer modes.
Powerful new map editor that lets people make games as diverse as SHMUPs and third person shooters.

And no LAN.

Why are we still arguing a point that was made moot when Blizzard very reasonably decided to back off Real ID?

Because some people think it was all a lie. Apparently Blizzard does exactly the opposite of what they say they're going to do, and will force everyone to use Facebook in order to play their games. Similarly, when Blizzard says there'll be no LAN support, it means that there actually will be.

My bad for arguing with idiots over the internet. It's a nasty habit of mine.

"We hope players will find this feature convenient, but it's completely optional. In the long term, we hope to give players who use Facebook some fun, and also optional, ways to share what they're doing in Blizzard games with their friends"
"Blizzard Entertainment does not share any personal information with Facebook as part of this process."

Quoted for emphasis, because a few people around here are morons.

That's why he asks for your best three.

He asks for that in the post, but the title of the thread is "Top 3 PC Games of All Time." Just clarifying.

so why the f do you think they made a deal with Faceshet? , not to think any kind of faceshet will be implanted is stupid opt yea right till they have sold some of the new games then it will come

CNN.com and 1/2 of the websites on the internet have optional facebook. Bluesnews uses Twitter. You think they all will eventually force you to use facebook/twitter?

Here's the latest Blizz FAQ on RealID, released today:
"We hope players will find this feature convenient, but it's completely optional. In the long term, we hope to give players who use Facebook some fun, and also optional, ways to share what they're doing in Blizzard games with their friends"

http://www.bluesnews.com/s/112239/blizzard-real-id-faq

They have never secretly changed anything, so unless they announce that they plan on making facebook mandatory, you and The PC Warrior are just straight up pulling shit out of your ass.

you belive them ? , even after what they tried to sneak in for a couple of weeks ago , ok np .....let peps get our new games and then the deal with faceshet will show its true face , don't you think faceshet is in this deal ohh and the other third compagny , for the money? i do

Faceshet is in tha house and that meens data is on its way out were i don't want it

They didn't try to "sneak" in shit. They tried to make Real Id required to post in forums, and then they backed off. They ANNOUNCED everything that they've tried to do, long before they did it. Real ID is optional and doesn't even require facebook, so why the fuck do you think they will secretly make facebook mandatory? Stupid.

So, Blizzard announcing that Real ID is not required = "soon realid will be the only system, no lan support, product activation and console versions of blizzard games are probably right on the horizon"? Fuck, you are a moron.

There. That's better. I've highlighted the relevant part of the post. Now it's not so difficult for you figure out that you're retarded.

Saying that "no lan support, product activation are probably right on the horizon" when they've already happened is another sign that you're a moron. It's amazing that your predictions of the future include things that have already occurred. My god you are a true oracle! Your other predictions must also be right!

I'll stop playing Blizzard games if that ever happens. Meanwhile you can continue your paranoid boycott. While your at it, you might as well delete your Bluesnews account, in case Blue starts selling you out to "The Man".

Yes, lets start reacting to all the bad things that could potentially happen in the future. For example, I won't go to work tomorrow since terrorists might bomb my building.

You reinforce my view of reality that there are idiots out there who truly believe that the earth is flat and the moon landing was faked.

as if they arent going to totally kill functionality for people that dont use their realid and facebook bs. they will get a worse experience. yeah that big deal they announced with them, that was just for fun

No. Functionality is exactly the same. You can either add people with their in game name, or you can add friends with their real id. It's the same in game.

For fucks sake, play the god damn game. It's right there. You can see for yourself instead of making up imaginary shit and then bitching about it. You people make me lose faith in humanity. This is like explaining to an idiot that the sky is blue.

on't fool your self , They made a deal with Faceshet ,

if it won't get into the game why make a deal with them ? , and no matter what kind of implant they do , it is a faceshet deal,

they blizzard need to sell there games thats why they did a "we listen to you" as i stated i don't trust them anymore , lets just get some sellsnumber first ,
then they get back to there deal with faceshet , give peps a carrot any carrot and they will eat it

Ugh. Do you people even read Bluesnews, or are you just here to troll? NOTHING was changed with their deal with Facebook. Facebook integration was ALWAYS optional, and there were NO PLANS ever for making it anything but optional.

What people got upset about was RealID requirement for posting on Blizzard Forums. You could still play the game anonymously, but you just couldn't make forum posts. Blizzard backtracked and appologized, and now you can make forum posts anonymously.

You could ALWAYS play their games anonymously, and there were never plans to change that.

Why the fuck are people so ignorant/stupid? Oh wait, its the internet. Lets band together, make up lies, and bitch about things we don't understand!

yeah getting upset about a game company trying to make you part of their social networking experiment is really....no wait that is fucking stupid

Yes, lets all piss ourselves over how if we don't click on the facebook integration button, we can play the game without being affected by it at all. Not clicking on a small button is so much work for me, I must bitch and whine about it ad nauseum. /sarcasm.

Your post doesn't really make sense, and I apologize if I misunderstood it and it isn't as retarded as I think it is.

maybe not human rights , but the personal data rights

You're not fighting for personal data rights, since Real ID and facebook integration is purely optional. Getting so upset over something that you can easily avoid is utterly stupid.

Those were not purposely left out of the original game in order to sell it at a later date. Imagine if WOW shipped with 1 character choice for chaos and one for...good guys. (or maybe 2?) Then each expansion added 1 more choice....maybe 1 more choice TOTAL, not for each side. It just seems like there is a point where you hack out the heart of the game and deliver an incomplete product.

Nothing is being "purposely" left out of the game. Did Lucas "purposely" leave out episodes 5 and 6 so that he could release movies at a later date? Does planning how many movies he was going to do beforehand make Star Wars a shitty ripoff? Starcraft 2's story was planned to span 1 game and 2 expansions, and people need to fucking stop overracting.

Also, your analogy is terrible, since the SC2 terran campaign will have 30 missions, which is as long as the Starcraft 1 campaign. If it makes you feel better, you can wait until all 3 games are released, then play 10 missions (or 1/3 of the campaign) for each race, and stop there and call that Starcraft 2. Then you can finish 10 more missions for each campaign, and call that the first expansion. Stop me when you realize how silly your argument is.
